  • Hosting CSHTML on Windows Server

    May 27, 2019 03:39 PM|aogden2013|LINK

    I created a .cshtml website in Visual Studio. Now I'm not sure how to host that project on my Windows Server. It's a Windows Server 2012 R2. Before, I've hosted regular html files by dropping them in the wwwroot folder of inetpub. I know that I need to use the ASP.NET of IIS to use the cshtml file type, but I'm new to it and not sure what the steps are to be able to view my project online.

    There are a few ASP.NET/ASP.NET Core project types using cshtml files,

    • ASP.NET Core MVC
    • ASP.NET Core Razor Pages
    • ASP.NET Web Pages 

    So before anyone comments further, you must reveal what exactly is the project type you use. Also, such questions are programming related, so ASP.NET forums are the best place,
